CC102 - Day 4

Awhile back I "attended" an Online Card Class that Tim Holtz had put together entitled Creative Chemistry 101. Well, he's back with the second installment, Creative Chemistry 102 (CC102). I love learning new techniques, and I love getting inky, so of course I signed up. What's nice about the Online Card Classes is that once you pay your tuition, you have lifetime access to the class, files, videos, etc. And if you participate during when the class is what I'll call "live", you can ask questions and interact with others taking the course. FUN!
We are not allowed to discuss the whys and wherefores of each days lesson, so I can simply post my creations and tell you what the technique is called. So here goes...

Tinted Tinsel

One thing to notice on this tag is that I colorized the leaf after having stamped it on acetate.

Faux Patina

Ombre (an hombre for Ombre, heheh)


Faded Layers (this one's for you Wendy Vecchi!!!!!)

Tim for Halloween!

This is my fav time of year for papercrafting! I love the fall colors and it's time for Halloween, too!
This tag was done following - to a point - Tim Holtz's direction for his Oct tag. I am still struggling to master using his Distress paints. It's getting better, though, and I have come to the conclusion that I use too much - less is more with them. I look forward to using them more and posting some more spooky goodness in the near future!
